Silver Fox Squares: August 2017 Update

What a great month for the Silver Fox Squares!

On July 1st  some of our club members attended the Independence Day celebration in Ocala. It was a very fun event and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely.

July 8th was the annual Christmas in July Dance, in Williston, to benefit the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital in Tampa, FL. There was a lot of great dancing and many great callers were there as well as a Chinese Auction, Cake Walk, and 50/50.

The benefit dance was a huge success and raised $3,663.55 to donate. If you didn’t attend this year you should make plans to attend next year! Continue reading Silver Fox Squares: August 2017 Update

Exciting News!

Most of you know that we have been busy working on some special events for the club and such. I am happy to let everyone know that we have the information available for the 5th Saturday Dance in September!

Our callers, Ken ‘Silver Fox’ Perez and Shane ‘Little Bear’ Perez, will be calling at this dance. The dance will be held in Lake City at the Richardson Community Center.

We will be collecting toys for the Basketball Cop Foundation. This foundation was started, by Officer Bobby White of the Gainesville Police Department, after a dash cam video from a noise disturbance call went viral last year. (You can click on the links to find out more about this foundation.)

We look forward to seeing you all there! Continue reading Exciting News!

Silver Fox Squares: July 2017 Update

June was another busy and exciting month for the Silver Fox Squares.

On June 2nd we had a special surprise when Tony & Sheila Cridge attended our dance. They are the clubs Vice-Presidents and have been unable to attend for a while due to health problems. It was so nice to see them back and we hope to see a lot more of them in the upcoming  months!

Then on June 9th the Silver Fox Squares hosted a Chili Dog Dangle Dance which was a big success! We had visitors from several clubs and we enjoyed dancing to our callers Ken  ‘Silver Fox’ Perez and Shane ‘Little Bear’ Perez as well as  visiting caller, Bill Chestnut. Then on July 16th we had a surprise mystery guest caller, Ronnie Langley from Calhoun, GA!

Mysterious things and people seem to appear without notice at our dances and we are pleasantly surprised every time. Continue reading Silver Fox Squares: July 2017 Update

Red, White, & Blue Dance

Silver Fox Squares: June 2017 Update

Wow! What a busy month for us! The Silver Fox Squares would like to thank everyone who attended our most recent dance, the Sombrero/Crazy Hat Dangle Dance. Our callers were Ken ‘Silver Fox’ Perez and Shane ‘Little Bear’ Perez. We were thrilled to see so many people come with so many different hats.
Many of the dancers also ordered dangles which have arrived and can be picked up on a club night. We dance every Friday night at the Bradford County Senior Center in Starke.
If you didn’t get to make it for this past dance please be sure to mark your calendars for June 9th for our upcoming Chili Dog Dangle Dance and July 21st for our Red, White, & Blue Dance.
We have also enjoyed dancing with many different visitors from other clubs throughout the month. On May 25th several dancers from the Silver Fox Squares went to the Moose Promenaders to retrieve our banner that was taken in April. This was the first banner retrieval done by many of our club members and we all had a great time!
We hosted a Mainstream Workshop on May 27th for our class. A big ‘Thank you’ to the visitors from other clubs who attended to brush up on calls and help our new dancers. Our dancers also provided lots of great food and refreshments for us to enjoy during our busy day.
We would like to invite everyone to check us out and like our page on Facebook to stay informed of upcoming events and activities at our club. We also post a lot of pictures and videos from the different classes, dances, and events that we participate in.

Sombrero/Crazy Hat Dangle Dance 

We had such a great time on Friday, May 5th, at our Sombrero/Crazy Hat Dance. We had several visitors from other clubs and almost everyone had some kind of interesting hat.  (Some of us had more than one hat which we swapped out during the dance.)

Silver Fox Squares: October 2017 Update

We had a rough start to the month of September and were forced to cancel dances in Starke and Ft. White due to Hurricane Irma. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those affected by the recent storms.

On September 22nd we had a dance and NEFSARDA came to retrieve the banner that our club had received at the previous 5th Saturday Dance in July. There was plenty of dancing and good times to be had by all.

Many of the dancers met afterwards at Powell’s Dairy Freeze for a bite to eat and some sweet treats. Everyone is always so very nice to us there.

During the week of the 29th we were informed that FEMA would be using the Bradford County Senior Center and all activities had been cancelled, which included our square dances.

Not to fear as arrangements were made  to start dancing at the First United Methodist Church at 200 N. Walnut St. in Starke.  (A map will be on page 3.) Our first dance in this hall will be on October 6th. We invite everyone to come out and join us as we will be having a very special guest. (See below for more information.)

September 30th was the 5th Saturday dance in Lake City with our very own callers Ken & Shane calling  and Ed Hauck was the cuer. (See page 2.)

A special thanks to everyone who has visited our club and supported us. Be sure to sign up for our email list if you haven’t already done so.

Also a big ‘Thank You’ to our club members for their teamwork and dedication to helping our clubs grow and prosper.

Our next special club dance will be our Friday the 13th Dangle Dance on October 13, 17 with a Special Guest Caller!

Silver Fox Squares: September 2017 Update

What another great month for the Silver Fox Squares!

On August 4th we had special guest caller, John Robbins, join us. He taught us some new calls and we are looking forward to having him visit again!

Then on August 12th the Silver Fox Squares joined the Silver Stars for a Potluck ‘Sound Check’ Dance at the Party Barn. Everyone had a great time and we want to thank Bill & Debbie Cassidy for inviting us out and allowing us to use their barn.

August 18th was our Sock Hop Dangle Dance. We rocked around the clock in our poodle skirts and saddle shoes. The guys had their hair slicked back and everyone had a blast.  Between tips we snacked on some RC colas and Moon Pies along with many other great refreshments supplied by our wonderful club member.

Many people ordered dangles and we will let everyone know when they are available for pickup.

We also met at Powell’s Dairy Freeze, as we do after many dances, and continued on with the fun and lively conversations.

A special thanks to everyone who has visited our club and supported us. Be sure to sign up for our email list if you haven’t already done so.

Also a big ‘Thank You’ to our club members for their teamwork and dedication to helping our club grow and prosper.
